Morrison & Foerster advised Infobip Group, a global cloud communications platform company for businesses and a leader in telecom solutions, in its acquisition of SMS firewall service provider Anam Technologies, which offers solutions to more than 80 mobile network operators (MNOs) with more than 606 million customers across the world.
Infobip enables businesses to build connected experiences across all stages of the customer journey. This strategic acquisition strengthens Infobip’s position as the first choice for MNOs through enhanced product and service offerings. Customers of both companies will benefit from a better all-up offering, including 24/7 Networks Operations Centre, on ground support, enriched analytics, and reporting. The companies will now be able to provide technical solutions to a combined 700+ MNOs globally, with 64% of global mobile phones reached.
